Today, Stockholm artist and producer Miynt dropped a new AA-side single including tracks "Give me palm trees and inner peace" and "Lovesong," out now via B3SCI Records. The release follows her 2019 EP Stay on Your Mind.
Self-written and co-produced by Miynt, with additional production by Karl Hovmark and mastering by Pete Lyman (St. Vincent, Halsey, Twin Peaks, Best Coast), "Give me palm trees and inner peace" and "Lovesong" are a mature evolution of Miynt's sonic palette and a bold addition to her growing repertoire. Her sound is reminiscent of classic rock bands like Nirvana and Radiohead, while maintaining the modernity of artists like Gorillaz and King Krule. Interview Magazine describes Miynt's sound as a "satin-smooth voice, glossy synths, and elegant production value."
The pair of new tracks are a pivot towards Miynt's guitar-driven roots, unleashing her most raw, grunge-inspired work to-date. A slick showcase of Miynt's lyrical dexterity brimming with coy observation and self-aware introspection, the songs address the inexorable digital ubiquity of modern day human connection. Put tersely, Miynt says the tracks are "songs about the internet."
The pair of psych-rock songs dropped alongside a self-produced stop-motion music video for "Give me palm trees and inner peace," which you can watch below.
Since her debut in 2016, Miynt has stayed occupied in the Stockholm arts scene, playing various live shows (pre-pandemic) and notably assembling a 4-piece band for the Miynt project. She has also delved into the world of analog production and recording live instrumentals. Much of her new material is also self-produced, a skill that Miynt continues to hone. Fun fact: The studio where much of her new material was written and produced was once used in the early 19th century as a radon-room for medical testing.
